term. four years ago, president barack obama welcomed the weight of that legacy casting himself as a blank canvas to project our lofty hopes for change and great expectations for the nation. the first item on his agenda, that bright legacy and suggested those hopes were well placed. president obama tried and succeeded where previous democratic presidents tried and failed. he enacted legislation that provided universal health care for all americans. four years after the first inauguration our lofty hopes for what was possible have been dragged back down to earth by the cold hand of reality and a republican dominated house of representatives. this time around, our great expectations may feel like managed expectations. take a look at president obama's second term official portrait. does that look like the face of a man that's lost hope for the future? after losing congressional support for his agenda, president obama urged us to hang on to the high hopes of the 2011 state of the union address. >> we do big things. >> just yesterday, vice president joe biden reminded us that this ad
million, and may i note that that was up from the $75.5 million he made a year earlier. so regardless of obama-care he is still making a ton of money. also let's keep in mind that the whole libertarian fiscal policy is oh let's make sure that the government leaves us alone and you can just depend on corporations and people to take care of one another. now, what do you think about that, michael hastings? i can't thing of anything that angers me more than that ridiculous naive notion. >> yeah, if the corporation is taking care of you it's a easy bargain. you pay us $40 and we'll give a checkup. if you don't want the government providing these services, and you don't want to take the responsibility, then you view the world in a free for all and i don't think it's very humane. and i think that's the shocking thing here. the fact that this guy came out and said this whole foods has a very crunchy granola brand to it and people shopping there would be shocked to learn of these views. >> ana: i want to talk to talk about people who seem to be crunchy granola but they're not. urban outfitters
obama administration was also not an administration saying let's go find some place to bomb. neither, for that matter, was president bush's eight years. we fought the wars that we felt were necessary. president bush worked hard to try to solve other problems through diplomatic means. and so i think it's a little too stark to make this kind of characterization. i, as you well know, always believed that we should try to avoid war. we should be willing to talk to friends and willing to talk to enemies. and try to find a solution that's peaceful. but when do you find it is necessary to use military force, use it with a clear political objective in mind and use it for a decisive result. that's the kind of attitude that chuck hagel will bring to the equation. we will be careful. he will give the president his best advice on the use or non-use of military force, how to solve the problem diplomatically. i'm sure he will be a great companion with mr. kerry in that regard. it's a good team. i think it's a very, very good team. now, a lot of my friends in the community who are of a more rightis
